No doubt the first single off the album, "Still Waiting", is one of the most political on the album. "What have we done/with a war that can't be won...", is just one of the many political backlashes featured on this track. Tracks like the more uplifting (or maybe not), "My Direction" make a very factual point about teenage suicide being one of the biggest causes of death in Canada and the United States while still keeping it closer to personal life ("i just know that life's not so bad.."). Some of the most addictive tracks on the album, however, are the all out rock tracks like "Over My Head (Better Off Dead" (i really hope this is the next single) and "No Brains" (this site has it listed as "Yesterday.com"). "The Hell Song" isn't as addictive as others but still brings the new rock formula to carry out a good track.
Though some of the harder rock tracks are very nice, some of the still punk/pop kind of tracks also fit in nicely ("All Messed Up", for instance).Read more ›

Overall this CD is amazing and you should buy it because if you don't i will kill you!
While I'm a fan of thrashy music and all.. Sum 41 keeps trying too hard to be "punk". If you're "punk", you are punk from the moment your band is formed. Not after your third album from a major label. They're just grasping for straws now.
Anyway, this is the first album thats really made me take notice of them. Its a decent album, but the politics of the situation make it seem slightly tarnished.
Sum 41 Track 12: Hooch = P.O.D. Track 3: Boom
They're not exactly the same but way way way too close to call their own.
